History, Charm and Southern Hospitality
The Pinehurst Harness Track is a 111-acre equestrian facility that has been a winter training center for standardbred horses since 1915. The grounds consist of three training tracks and several center aisle barns with approximately 300 stalls, as well as several paddocks. Champion trotters and pacers train on either the 1/2 mile sand/clay track, the 5/8 mile sand/jog track, or the 1 mile clay track, all of which serve as an ideal winter training facility. If you are interested in leasing stalls or grooms quarters, please fill out the below Lease Agreement Application.
The tracks are also available for rent when training is not taking place. Typical events include horse shows, car shows, dog shows, and rugby matches. Schedule of events open to the public are listed below.
The Harness Track is located at 200 Beulah Hill Road South and can be reached at (910) 295-4446 or 1-800-644-TROT.
The Village of Pinehurst is in the process of constructing a permanent outdoor horse riding arena on the infield of the ½ mile track at the Pinehurst Harness Track located at 200 Beulah Hill Rd. in Pinehurst. The open air arena area is approximately 280 feet by 300 feet and can be divided up into multiple show rings for various events. It has a 6 inch compacted clay base with 6 inches of unwashed stone screenings compacted on top of the clay. The surface can be groomed to the needs of each individual event in terms of depth and compaction within the arena. The rings will be completed in mid-October and can be utilized for Dressage, Hunter Jumper and other equine competitions.
Private donors contributed funds to help defray the cost of the project enabling it to move forward and staff will be working to attract additional shows to the facility. The new show rings have already led to a commitment of 4-5 new shows added to the schedule of events for 2012. For information about reserving the show rings for an event, please contact Ray Skellington, Track Supervisor at 295-4446.
is a charming, vibrant community which reflects our rich history and traditions, enhanced by a unique combination of cultural arts and recreational activities.
